(Replying quite some time later, just so that this information is all in one place.)

That's "Reg. Ex.", which stands for regular expression, a powerful syntax for matching patterns in text.

Here's what I use for the LMA: /(\.(flac|shn|txt|ffp|md5))$/

The dollar sign ($) is a magic character that means "match only to the end of the text". So, this only matches links that have "flac" or "shn" or "txt" or "ffp" or "md5" at the end.

Aha! Thanks so much. I use the DTA interface frequently and have struggled to do exactly what you have now laid out so clearly! It is that look only if at the end of file issue (the $) that I had never figured out.
